Frederick Augustus Ramsay was my great Grandfather. A lot of the information in this thread I can provide references for. I even have a photo of Him and his wife Kate. I am interested in anything else about him and why people are interested. I'm happy to share what I have.

That's Frederick Augustus. His father became a Major General in India but I can't find anything on either of them.
 
Don't know if J S = John Syme.

This may be a grandson.

I've looked on both sites and can't find anything.

John Skardon Ramsay was in the army long enough to rise to rank of Major-General so I expected to find him on one of the lists.
